Points Scale

pointscale

This continues for every single team that weighs a fish. Any Team that participates, but does not weigh in a fish will receive 50 points

 

Non Boaters

Any club member who wishes to fish a tournament but does not have a boat to fish from whether it be by themselves or with a teammate is responsible for finding a boat or a teammate with a boat to fish from.

To aid in finding a boat the non-boater may contact the club officials prior to the event date. There are no guarantees that club officers will find a boat for the non-boater to fish from but they will do what they can to help. It is suggested that the non-boater utilizes the club forum or Facebook page to help contact other members to see if anyone is looking for a teammate.
